  • Weiman, Rebels bombard Eagles

    By Tim Donohoo

    There is a very good reason as to why the University of Kansas baseball program latched on to Columbine senior pitcher Blake Weiman. He is tall, lanky and mixes his pitches well. And one other thing — he is just plain good.

  • Navratil to represent Dakota...

    DENVER — Rachel Navratil will represent the Dakota Ridge Lady Eagles at state after she placed second at No. 3 singles in the 5A Region 5 tournament May 1 at City Park.
    The Dakota Ridge senior was 7-1 in dual matches during the regular season. Last year, she played No. 3 doubles.

  • Lady Chargers serves up 2nd...

    BOULDER — Gabbie Jones and Catherine Day, Chatfield’s No. 2 doubles tandem, rallied from a 5-1 deficit in the first-set tiebreak against Fairview’s Angela Cai and Laura Jamison at No. 2 doubles en route to winning the 5A Region 4 championship on April 30 at Fairview High School. Jones and Day won the match 7-6 (10-8), 7-5.
    They earned one of five state-qualifying spots for the 5A Jeffco League champion Lady Chargers, who placed second to Fairview in the regional team standings.

  • Columbine’s No. 3 doubles team...

    Leah Rogers and Carley Maloney didn’t start out the 2014 season as partners, but they found out quickly that they were a perfect fit for each other.
    Columbine’s No. 3 doubles partners are aggressive players by nature. They communicate well on the court and they share a similar sense of humor. All of those ingredients proved to be a recipe for success.
    “It turned out to be a really good partnership. I think it worked out really well for both of us,” Rogers said.

  • A cut above the rest

    There’s a quiet confidence within Sydney Merchant. It’s evident both in the way she speaks and when she’s on the golf course.

    Chatfield runs the table, captures 5A Jeffco League title

    Gabrielle Jones and Catherine Day rallied for a 6-7 (4), 7-5, 6-2 victory over Calee White and McKenna Thomas at No. 2 doubles, helping Chatfield to a 4-3 victory over Lakewood on April 21 at Ken-Caryl Ranch House.
    The win secured an 8-0 conference season for the Lady Chargers and a 5A Jeffco League championship.

  • Pryor, host Mustangs fend off...

    DENVER — Columbine could have mailed this one in having already won the 5A Front Range league title with a 3-2 win on the road at Fairview two days earlier. But that would not have  been acceptable. After all, this was Columbine, the state’s seventh-ranked team, colliding with  eighth-ranked Mullen.
    The game was decided in overtime with Mullen escaping with the 8-7 sudden victory on April 25.

  • Bezdek, Chatfield have Columbine...

    Something about Columbine brings out the best in Bree Bezdek and the Chatfield girls soccer team.
    Bezdek, a sophomore striker, notched her second two-goal game in three career outings against the Lady Rebels as the Lady Chargers completed a season sweep with a 2-1 come-from-behind 5A Jeffco League victory on April 25 at Columbine High School. Bezdek scored both goals in last year’s 2-1 win but went scoreless in Chatfield’s 1-0 triumph on March 15 in the South Jeffco Invitational.

  • Chargers pull away late from...

    LAKEWOOD — Rachael Walker was sitting in the penalty box, the result of a two-minute yellow card as Arapahoe scored back-to-back goals early in the second half to take a two-goal lead. It not only would be the fourth-ranked Lady Warriors’ largest cushion of the game, but it would end up being the last two goals they would score.

  • Rebels slam previously unbeaten...

    Tyler Mohr recognized that Chatfield Senior High pitcher Nick Chamberlain was starting off his pitch rotation with a curveball. So he bided his time as the first pitch collected some dirt. The next pitch was a high-and-in fastball that the Columbine third baseman was ready to let fly.

    He did just that, cracking a two-out grand slam in the bottom of the fifth. It was the first of two homers in the frame as the third-ranked Rebels scored six runs in the inning to fend off top-ranked Chatfield 12-6 on a cloudy April 23 afternoon at Frank DeAngelis Field.
